What can I say? Grill butter is a no-no, folks. Eggs are NOT SUPPOSED TO BE GREASY. Wait staff ignored that the meal was left untouched after first bite, then was DOUBLE-CHARGED for my uneaten meal. REALLY. Save yourself the nightmare, folks. Try L's Kitchen instead for the best breakfast in Fortuna.

This place is absolutely amazing! After reading positive reviews on this site my husband and I decided to have lunch there one day. I had a Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich with a salad on a side and hubby ordered one of their burgers with a baked potato soup on a side and an order of onion rings. Both of our... More

We ate breakfast at Hot Brew several times and were very happy with the food, the service and the selection. When we returned one day for lunch, we were disappointed. We ate on the patio and the service was so slow as to be non-existent. The lunch menu while looking good, just didn't taste very good and we were disappointed.... More

Not that many choices in this tiny town. Breakfast was OK, in fact, the pancakes were fabulous, but server brought a coffee cup but no coffee...even when asked if coffee was being brewed a few minutes later, failed to indicate that it was "self-serve" and located in the other dining room. Lots of choices once I figured it out. My... More

Excellent wait staff. Traveling unannounced with many young ones, just dropped in & were seated comfortably and catered to. Food was made-to-order and mostly delicious. Fries were steakhouse style with great seasoning. Had the "divine Annie Bleu burger," definitely recommend. Hot cocoa & blackberry smoothies with whipped cream felt like a treat for the kids. Many veggie options. Pasta salad,... More

While visiting Fortuna this restaurant was suggested as the best place around to have breakfast. Our food was delicious. The service was prompt. The thing we didn't like was the unending banter between the employees about who was supposed to do which task and who was working which shift. These discussions should be kept out of the sight and sound... More
